Shem Guibbory, violin; Robert Burkhart, cello; Oxana Mikhailoff, piano 

“ALL ABOUT LOVE” You will love this program! In fact, we feel that the music on this program really is all about Love.

Feb 2019 MM

There is something for everyone: Rachmaninoff’s expression of Romantic Love, Beethoven’s Love from Celestial Realms, Iascha Heifetz’s  beloved transcription of Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Shostakovich‘s almost painfully beautiful Preludes.

And yes, we agree with you, opposites  attract!

Rachmaninoff , Shostakovich, Gershwin and Beethoven’s “Archduke” Trio

Vassily Primakov and Oxana Mikhailoff

The Extraordinary and Talented and Dynamic DUO in person…. Vassily Primakov and Oxana Mikhailoff have been scheduled. 

Schumann – The complicated genius
Complete Piano Sonatas.Oxana and Vassily
Sonata #1 F Sharp Minor op.11
Sonata #2 G Minor op.22
Oxana Mikhailoff, piano

Sonata #3 F Minor op.14
“Concerto without an Orchestra”
Vassily Primakov, piano
The Romantic era was intimately associated with the conjuring-up of dreamworlds, and no-one dreamed with the intensity of Schumann. “I am affected by everything that goes on in the world,” he once confessed. “That is why my compositions are sometimes difficult to understand, because they are connected with different states of mind; and sometimes striking, because everything extraordinary that happens impresses me, and then impels me to express it in music.”

Oxana Mikhailoff and Vassily Primakov have known each other for nearly 30 years. Both spent their formidable years at the Moscow State Conservatory under the tutelage of the legendary Professor Vera Gornostaeva. Sharing these experiences formed an unbreakable bond between these two pianists that inspires them to perform such substantial programs and educate their audiences.
